Safeguarding Awareness Day 2021
SAFEGUARDING DAY 2021
Tomorrow marks a special day for Ireland. It will the first every Safeguarding Awareness day in our country.
Despite strict regulations governing Adult Safeguarding in Ireland, high volume of cases are still being reported to HIQA, HSE and the Garda, annually. As such, it is important for frontline Health & Social Care staff to keep abreast with relevant legislation, policies & best practice. All the required information are available online (government websites).
Golden rule: If you’ve a query or doubt on any practice related matter, always consult your immediate line manager or Designated Safeguarding officer.
‘’Everyone has the right to be safe and to live a life free from harm. Safeguarding means putting measures in place to promote people’s human rights and their health and wellbeing, and empowering people to protect themselves’’. HIQA / MHC
To honour this special awareness day, we have reduced the cost of our Safeguarding of Vulnerable adults awareness online course to €15 per person.
